Summer Yoga Brunch

Starting your Saturday with a 75 min energising and balancing morning yoga session is the ultimate way to set the tone for your weekend!

My classes are always mindful and inclusive, integrating techniques from Hatha, Vinyasa Yin and Nidra, styles, while weaving spiritual philosophy throughout. Class will leave you feeling calm, clear + centred. Post yoga we’ll tuck into this creative Caribbean fusion summer feast prepared by the loved up legends that are Rogue Vegans, which fuses the best of Mauritus and Jamaican flavours!

Both the yoga + buffet style brunch will take place in the light and airy space that is @Space 61 Peckham, so we all get to connect consciously in a happy place and space.

New to Yoga?

This will be open level hatha flow class. Beginners are very welcomed and encouraged, and for the more advanced yogis there will always be options to deepen any pose.

Allergies or special meal requirements?

The meal is totally Vegan, so no meat or dairy. However any other allergies, please do drop me a line before booking!

Cost?

Class + Buffet Brunch; £35

Looking forward to eating, meeting + flowing with you all at the end of the month!

Namaste..x

Monthly Yoga Nidra
Jul

7:00 pm19:00

Monthly Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is an invitation to come as you are, lie down and allow your body to fully let go into a deep state of relaxation as my voice takes you on a guided meditation / exploration around your physical body.

Session starts with roughly 15 min of Yin Yoga then 45 min Nidra, where you set yourself up with pillows, blankets, lavender eye pillows and bolsters; The idea is that once your body is absolutely comfortable, it can also remain absolutely still and centre.

Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep, or sleep that is yoga, though in fact it's not a sleep but an awakening. It induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.  Swami Rama describes it this way; ' Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious sleep in which one can record what is going on. There is a fine distinction between Yoga Nidra and Samadhi. In Yoga Nidra one can record those experiences which he cannot receive in the conscious state. When one cannot register something properly in the waking state,they can go into Yoga Nidra to register it..'

If you've never tried a Nidra class, you'd be pleasantly surprised at how it helps you feel deeply rejuvenated, as well as with a calm and clear state of mind!

Limited spaces, so to book please drop me an email..

Christingle Christmas Markets at Myatt's Fields

Tucked down the backstreets between Loughborough junction and Oval, is the gorgeous Myatts’ Fields park with pretty little bandstand, friendly locals plus a flourishing new community market launched earlier this year by the lovely Stephanie..

Have visited on a few occasions and got to know the friendly faces behind quite a few amazing and unique food stalls, from Juyhin with her authentic Kimchi to Rasta Ria with her addictive Jerk Tofu to Merak with her tantalising traditonal Greek sweets that leave you drooling for more. Ate loads of good food, entertained by brilliant bands and connected to another pocket of community love in South London, w

When Stephanie told me about their special Christmas markets, though I must try and squeeze this one in, as all year been wanting to get there on a Sunday but clashes with my 9am yoga class..

So will be there with my lush lavender eye pillows, yoga mat bags and journals as well as some stock from other makers part of Purple Palm Wellness collective..

Do pop by and say hi if you’re local!

Day runs from 10am-5pm

2.30pm. Mince pies and mulled wine on sale to raise funds for MFPP.

YIN YANG YOGA + KERALAN CHRISTMAS MEAL

YIN YANG YOGA + KERALAN CHRISTMAS MEAL

Back by popular demand!

Will be holding a 90 min Yin Yang Yoga Class followed by a 4 course Vegetarian Keralan Supper, which is sure to do the job of getting you out of your head and well and truly into your body..

Yin Yang Yoga aims to cultivate a balanced holistic practice. ‘Yin’ postures are long held and seated, targeting the connective tissue, joints and ligaments.  This side of the practice helps with joint mobility & is also deeply meditative, engaging with the meridian lines & releasing ‘stuck’ energy.  The ‘Yang’ postures & practice are more dynamic and engage the muscles, developing strength & flexibility.  Yin Yang Yoga encourages engaging with  foundation and alignment through standing postures & flowing movement. 

Chef Vizzy Sagar who's originally from Kerala, a self taught culinary artist, big on the London Markets food scene, specialises in authentic, mouth watering dishes from his homeland.  He really is second to none with quality, freshness and taste of course… Plus there’s the added bonus of his wicked sense of humour!

Not to be missed! 

Class + Supper £35
